NJ's Early Childhood Initiatives

These Parent Engagement Cards are based on New Jersey's Birth to Three Early Learning Standards (www.nj.gov/education/ece/guide/standards/birth/standards.pdf). They were developed by the New Jersey Coalition of Infant/Toddler Educators in collaboration with the New Jersey Association for Infant Mental Health, the New Jersey Council for Young Children, and the SPAN Parent Advocacy Network. They provide strategies for parents to use every day with their young children to help support their healthy physical, emotional, and mental development and wellbeing.
